Early life and education

Adele Laurie Blue Adkins was born on 5 May 1988 in the Tottenham district of London, to an English mother, Penny Adkins, and a Welsh father, Marc Evans.[5] Evans left when Adele was 2, and she was brought up by her mother.[6][7] She began singing at age 4 and asserts that she became obsessed with voices.[8][9] In 1997, 9-year-old Adele and her mother, who by then had found work as a furniture maker and an adult-learning activities organiser, relocated to Brighton on the south coast of England.[10]

In 1999, she and her mother moved back to London; first to Brixton, then to the neighbouring district of West Norwood in south London, which is the subject of her first song "Hometown Glory".[11] She spent much of her youth in Brockwell Park where she would play the guitar and sing to friends, which she recalled in her 2015 song "Million Years Ago". She stated, "It has quite monumental moments of my life that I've spent there, and I drove past it [in 2015] and I just literally burst into tears. I really missed it."[12] Adele graduated from the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon in May 2006,[13] where she was a classmate of Leona Lewis and Jessie J.[1][14] Adele credits the school with nurturing her talent[15] even though, at the time, she was more interested in going into artists and repertoire (A&R) and hoped to launch other people's careers.
